Tackling the unknowns: leverage computing in biomedical sciences and public health




Pan Deng



The advancement of biomedical sciences and public health research, while greatly lifting human wellness, brought in new open questions along with an immense amount of biological data. Computational tools, with their power in big data processing and complex pattern modeling, may play an important role in helping us push the boundaries of our knowledge. During the past few years, Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) has been actively exploring opportunities to leverage artificial intelligence and computing technologies in biomedical sciences and public health. We will share the progress and vision on computational biomedical sciences and public health across MSRA and Microsoft in this talk.
